While fans anxiously await a new season of the hit Netflix adaptation, The Witcher community continues to impress with more and more cosplays, including this fiery Triss Merigold design.

Things have been quiet on the video game side of things since The Witcher’s last mainline release in 2015. However, fans of the RPG series have had plenty to keep themselves occupied with ever since. From the full release of Gwent to the Henry Cavill-led Netflix adaptation, the franchise may be bigger now than it ever was.

As expected, cosplayers haven’t slowed down with their renditions of popular characters either. From Yennefer to Cyberpunk-infused Ciri, there’s never any shortage of remarkable costumes. The latest comes from popular cosplayer ‘ohmysophii’ with an extremely authentic take on everyone’s favorite sorceress.

Thanks to the help of some fancy editing, this creation comes to life and stands out from the pack with realistic abilities on display.

Since I did a whole month of Witcher content, here is my Triss cosplay. I tried to channel the personality of each character as I did them, hope you enjoy! from witcher

Her take on the character has seen multiple iterations over the years though a few key details have remained consistent throughout. In the most recent version, Triss is posing for pictures while reading through a book that she often keeps handy. As a powerful healer, her skills come in handy more often than not on the battlefield.

The cosplayer’s hair is identical to the vibrant red of her video game counterpart. Moreover, every detail from the sleeves to the collars are recreated faithfully to properly capture her aura. 

Subtle color changes are noticeable throughout the unique versions of her Triss cosplay. One features bright red sleeves and a matching belt, while the other trades those out for an aqua style instead. However, perhaps the biggest difference between the two, is the character’s unmistakable amulet. 

Triss can be seen with her amulet around her neck at almost all times throughout the video games. Though one older instance of ohmysophii’s cosplay ditches this piece of jewelry for a more fiery impact. Added effects light up the photoshoot as Triss prepares a spell to fend off any monsters nearby.

Triss is far from the only character that this cosplayer has focused on in the past. In fact, characters from The Witcher franchise are among her most prominent. Be sure to check out her other designs on her official Instagram account.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
